The first thing most people will notice is that the mic info is lacking somewhat. The tapes came to me labeled exactly as shown above. I'm not sure if it's supposed to read KM254, KM184, KM140... etc... there is no model of Neumann's that I could find that can run as (or be abbreviated as) a straight "KM4", so apparently the source info for this tape was mis-documented somewhere. - regardless, it's a very nice sounding tape.
In addition, this recording isn't *quite* perfect, but it comes very close! There are 2 large dropouts that I verified were on the tapes too:
- during the Blackberry Blossom jam.
- during the Drums > Didg jam.
For the BBB jam, I faded out and back in around the dropout, and cut the silence down to a split second. You'll definitely notice it, but it's brief and not too bad anymore. For the Drums dropout, I just cut it right out, and blended it in with the rhythm of the jam. If you can find it, you have some sharp ears!
I justify spreading this one with the issues above because it sounds really nice, because the San Jose with all the guests is incredible, and because the show isn't spread very wide right now. Despite the issues, I'm sure many folks will enjoy it as is. Hopefully someday a more complete copy will surface to replace this one. Or, if someone can offer me a copy of BBB and Drums without dropouts, I will patch them instead.
Got an email from Mark Scheppach confirming that this tape was Sandy Alexander's and that the mics were Neumann KM254's. Updating the info above, thanks Mark!
